The Louis-ville slugger.

I did not need it at the end of the day.
He got owned by his PD Nurse this afternoon before she shipped him off to dialysis.
He's learned his lesson .. I haven't seen him so quiet since EVER. Not even his Sandia Lab stories could have saved him today.
As they say in Maori, E Koe mofo! (minus the mofo).

Happy Birthday to Nessa-Nu who, ten years earlier, scared us all when she arrived 6 weeks too early weighing 4lbs.


Birthday Cake that Michelle made ... by way of Pak n Save.

Robyn was 8 on Monday and Ma (my grandmother, their great-grandmother) was 100 82.

The birthday girls.

Hubba and her desserts.


The Girls.
We have too many girls in the family .. this is a good thing because my Pops always said the boys in our family were pansies and I concur.



Seafood Salad for dinner with hidden valley ranch!

The Hawkes Bay dialysis unit construction.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
